Antea Group was contracted by a major pipeline company to complete a performance test of two marine VCUs and a VOC leak quantification of components during loading of marine vessels. The protocol for both of these tests had been developed by a previous consultant and TCEQ had not yet approved protocol. The client recently purchased the facility and had little information on important parameters needed to properly define scope and duration of project and could only provide ten-days advance notice of test date due to ship scheduling issues.
